    Introducing: Nice To Meet You

    We’ve launched a hilarious new Gen-Z Media show that features some of the world’s best improv comedians. Here’s the first episode, and there’s plenty more over on the Nice To Meet You feed so be sure to head on over and subscribe!
    On his private space station high above Earth, Professor Burkhead has begun conducting a ground-breaking social experiment. Each week, his “Unifier” pairs together two unlikely creatures and puts them in a room together where the two subjects (an accountant and a giant squid, one week; a porcupine and a ballerina the next, etc) talk, debate, get to know each other, and maybe learn something new about themselves in the process.
